A 20-year-old man identified as Halifa Hamza has k!lled his elder brother, Usman Hamza with scissors in Kano State Nigeria.
According to DAILY GIST HUB The event reportedly took place on Sunday, April 2, 2023, following a fight between the siblings.
Their father, Alhaji Hamza, claimed in an interview with Freedom Radio that the younger brother’s donning his older brother’s shirt and pants was the real reason for their argument rather than a cat as was rumored.
“The elder brother that was killed (Usman) collected my motorcycle to go and inform his friends that we had organised Iftar for people so that they could come and eat.
When he came back, he saw his younger brother with his shirt and trousers. He then asked why he did that, and from there a fight started. The younger one entered the house and brought a pair of scissors and stabbed the older brother on his chest and he died there.”
A friend of Halifa, who begged to remain anonymous, claimed that he fled the house as soon as the incident took place.
An investigation is underway, according to SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, spokesman for the state police command, who verified the event to Daily Trust on Wednesday.
